Not alone! My fiance has a son although he was not previously married — I moved into the house that he and his ex bought together, though.

Now we’re having our baby boy any day, and our wedding is in September. You do what you gotta do 🙂

we don’t have children together or from previous relationships but we have been living together for 2.5 years! I love it!

Darling Husband and I lived together pretty much the entire time we’ve known each other, so a big definite YES on the nesting thing. No kids, though, but only because neither of us felt like we were ready for that.

I know you’re not alone in that. It wasn’t our situation, but I know a ton of people in real life who do have the kids first. On Weddingbee, I think cyndistar has a daughter with her Fiance if you want to look her up. 🙂 Its normal and fine, don’t feel out of place.

You are totally not alone.

Fiance and I have lived together for 1.5 years, and will have lived together for 2 on our wedding day.  No kids though.  We are definitely not ready for that one–we have to finish school first lol!  I feel like having kids with your SO before being married is almost as common as waiting til after marriage now though.

We don’t have any children yet. We are waiting until after graduation when actual money will be in our account instead of the patheic tripple digits we have been living off of. But we have been living together for 2 years and I wouldn’t change it fo the world! I think I would be going nuts if I didn’t live with him already!

@keturahrussell:

oh the joys of failed birth control! I hear you on that one haha.

eta: didn’t mean for that to come off sounding the wrong way — just adding that I too was very very surprised to find myself in an unplanned situation (love my son dearly, but he certainly caught us off guard).

Although we do not have any children, Fiance and I bought a home together and have been living together for 2 1/2 years. Sometimes I feel like it is a little backwards but it was right for us so that’s what we did.

No children here, but Darling Husband and I lived together for 3 years before we were married.

  • Wedding: August 2011

We found out I was pregnant about two months after getting engaged and at first we planned to have a wedding before the baby was born but I REALLY didn’t want to be pregnant at my wedding. I’d have liked to have been married before she was born, but shit happens, you know? The timing of the pregnancy wasn’t what we’d have chosen but we made it work. She was born in August 2009 and we were trying to plan a May 2010 wedding but my dad was working overseas in Germany at the time and had a limited number of days he was able to be back in the States due to tax reasons and my sister’s college graduation also fell in May. We couldn’t expect him to come back twice in one month OR stick around for 2 extra weeks in between, so we scrapped that idea too and FINALLY settled on August 2011. So all this time we’ve been living together (nearly 3 years by our wedding day) and raising our daughter, it’s just that life got in the way of wedding planning a little bit and we had to wait until the time was best for us AND our families.
